Famously, the pair also starred in the 1996 series Dennis the Menace and Gnasher which aired on various networks around the world.
At 65-years-old, Dennis and Gnasher have been redrawn in 3D for CBBC’s new CGI show Dennis & Gnasher Unleashed, which hits the network next year. Check out the new version below.
